    Hi Panel. I have reserved a sleigh ride in Dec. Is it appropriate to tip the driver? What would be the typical amount? Love the panel and enjoy your answers every day. Thank you!

    Hi April!

    Thank you so much for your kind words! We love answering your questions so thank you for putting your trust in us and allowing us to send a little pixie dust your way!

    A holiday sleigh ride is just the thing to put you in the holiday spirit and there's no better place than Disney World to do that!  I am big believer in tipping where appropriate and accepted. While it is not necessary, the carriage drivers accept and appreciate tips. In my conversations with Guests and other panelists, I've found that the average tip is in the $5 - $10 range. I always try to have my planned amount on hand for tipping as Cast Members don't often carry cash with them to make change.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions.  We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
